‘Sully’ Still Flying High at US Weekend Box Office


Clint Eastwood’s Sully is still flying high at the North American box office chart for a second consecutive week. The film, which stars Tom Hanks as Captain Chesley Sullenberger during his heroic plane landing on the Hudson in 2009, brought in an additional $22 million for its second weekend in release, bringing it’s total gross to $70.5 million (production budget was $60 million).

Coming in second was the Blair Witch sequel which brought in $9.6 million ($5 million production budget), and in third was Bridget Jones’s Baby with $8.2 million ($35 million production budget). Bridget Jones’s Baby actually did quite well overseas bringing in $30 million from 38 different territories including $11 million in the UK. The romantic comedy was the third installment in the Bridget Jones series, and it received generally positive reviews – they just didn’t translate to grabbing the attention of movie-goers.

Opening in fourth was Oliver Stone’s biopic Snowden, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Edward Snowden. The film made $8 million ($40 million production budget), and it actually ranks as the lowest-grossing debut of Stone’s career.

Don’t Breathe is still hanging onto the charts, coming in fifth this week with $5.6 million. The film has now grossed $75.3 million.

Opening this week in theaters: The Magnificent Seven, Storks, The Dressmaker, and more!
